Charles Edwin Dorsworth

Date of Death: January 18, 2023


At daybreak on January 18th, 2023, Dr. Charles Edwin Dorworth sailed forth over Duck Bay with his beloved birds, freed from his pain at last.

An avid birder, and part of Nina Raginski’s Water Bird Watch, Charles took great pleasure in recording the daily presence of bird life in the waters of Duck Bay.

Charles was also the proud warden at the North End Reserve of the Salt Spring Island conservancy, where for many years he took great pride in helping to protect the environment where he lived.

Employed by the Federal Government as a Senior Scientist in Forestry, Charles spent his career travelling the world, sharing his knowledge and making many life-long friends.

Charles was a man who took great pleasure in life, always positive in his outlook and generous with his charitable donations and time for his family.

Gloria, his beloved wife offers gratitude to Jeremy and Fiona for their love and support of Charles, and to the Anglican church for their prayers in his final days.

Our family offers thanks to the doctors and nurses in the Acute Care Ward of Lady Minto Hospital for their care and support of Charles.

Please offer any donations in Charles’ memory to Lady Minto Hospital.
